PECOE: Full Tilt EP (2017)

PECOE:  Full Tilt EP (2017)There’s no end-of-the-year slacking from Oz party-breaks merchant Pecoe who delivers decidedly summery four-tracker the Full Tilt EP to warm-up your life before shit gets really cold. As with his Dance Sucka bump on the summer’s Big Fat Mama Beats Vol. 2 from BBP, he’s clearly got the requisite old school party breaks credentials but isn’t completely trying to deny that he’s living in 2017

MORLACK: Ghetto Disco Vol. 2 (2017)

MORLACK:  Ghetto Disco Vol. 2 It seems like barely a minute since Morongroover and Mr Bristow popped the cherry of a new Breakbeat Paradise series – Ghetto Disco – and now here’s Morlack with Ghetto Disco Vol. 2. Being Morlack of course, he’s not only gone one track deeper than Vol. 1 (taking this to five tracks) but his ‘ghetto’ take on disco benefits from his magpie-like approach to sampling. Take in your

MINED & FORREST: There It Is EP (2017)

MINED & FORREST:  There It Is EP Mined & Forrest from Munich and Cologne-based collective Obba Select forge a musical alliance with their There It Is EP on which they provide their vision for twenty-first century booty breaks. The title track is a buzzsaw bass-influenced mid-tempo cut that stitches Kool Keith and Public Enemy to Missy Elliott while Funk Toxic references a late 80s sound with a punchy 808 bass vibe and Drugs

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Big Fat Mama Beats 2 (2016)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Big Fat Mama Beats 2BBP’s latest comp. is Big Fat Mama Beats 2 – a second and even larger helping (ten tracks rather than seven) to follow-up last year’s first volume. As before, dismiss from your mind any notion suggested by the cover art or title of delicate or swinging tweaks of Big Maybelle tracks. What you’re getting here is industrial-sized slabs of fat funk breaks – for which read plenty of glitch and grind

LACK JEMMON: Lack Jemmon EP (2017)

LACK JEMMON:  Lack Jemmon EPLatest on vinyl 12″ from BBP is the Lack Jemmon EP. No guesses who that’s by. And so it is that the Hungarian pairing deliver a four-tracker for masses – quite literally actually as it kicks off with a remix of a certain ska-influenced pop tune by Simon Cowell puppet, Olly Murs. And if you thought that displayed formidable chutzpah, check the next tune which redefines the very concept of

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Disco Paradise (2017)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Disco ParadiseDisco Paradise sees Breakbeat Paradise continuing a series of generically-themed outings that have previously taken in 70s funk and dancehall reggae and which, this time, finds the label turning its breakbeat sights on the glittery world of disco. But where on earth might label boss Badboe find a team morally depraved enough to embrace the nefarious influences of the mirrorball lifestyle

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Breakin’ The Riddim (2017)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE:  Breakin' The RiddimRating: ★★★★★ Looks like it’s time for another themed EP from Breakbeat Paradise and no prizes for guessing that a release entitled Breakin’ The Riddim with cover art featuring a dreadlocked breakdancer entails a marriage of breakbeat and various reggae-related styles. No prizes either for guessing that it’s richer in bangers than a Walls sausage factory. Fredy High for example, heavies

TURNTILL & MERLIN feat. DOPPIA ERRE & SKY 189: Break A Day (2017)

Rating: ★★★★★ Looks like it’s not just The Allergies and Andy Cooper who’ve got Get Down fever in the last few weeks – for here is the new one from Chosen Few crew members Turntill & Merlin featuring Doppia Erre and Sky 189Break A Day. Alright, so The Get Down is set in 1978 and Break A Day lyrically eulogises 1989 but there’s more than a little block party feel to this drop – on

BADBOE feat. MC SHURESHOCK: Under The Spell EP (2017)

No need to look further if you’re in need of heavyweight funky breaks with original raps on top this month since Badboe‘s got you covered. It’s hard to imagine that Under The Spell will fail to cast its enchantment across dancefloors, turning as it does on a funky sample heavily buried in crunchy drums and synth fx with Oz rapper MC Shureshock busting bars on the mic
